May 27th is the date for Phoebe's bone marrow test - the sample of bone marrow will then be sent to St.Jude for chimerism and MRD testing. It is so hard not to worry, but we try. This test will tell us if the last 99% chimerism was in fact a mistake and we need this to be so.
On June 4th, Phoebe's dad, her grandpa and a friend are shaving their heads to raise money for childhood cancer research as part of the C17 Great, Big Head Shave. C17 represents the 17 pediatric oncology centers across Canada and the money raised will support childhood cancer research in Canada. We need research to keep moving forward, it is why Phoebe is here, it is important, and it is drastically underfunded. Please help fill the gap, help improve the lives of children with cancer by supporting research that aims to find cures and less invasive and more targeted treatments for childhood cancers. Help kids like Phoebe grow up healthy and happy.
We are looking for team members and donations. If you are interested in supporting team Phoebe Rose Rocks with a donation or joining as a "shavee", please click this link. Thank-you!
